Jeremy,
I know in corns you don't have to hibernate to get viable eggs. This being my first and only time, I have no clue if that can be done with Pines. In my home it's just naturally cooler in winter. I'm in North Dakota...no need to explain there...LOL! So in a way the colubrids that aren't in hibernation still get a temp drop at night that could still cycle them. My female corns have had their post hibernation shed now, so we'll see what happens. The only males I have this year are first time breeders so... We'll see. I do have a male ghost who could back up, but I don't need a bunch of normal and anery corns. Not after they sold so poorly last year.
As for the male biting behind the female's head, again, first time I've bred them, so, I guess I can say yep...that's how it's done, at least in this pairs case. Take care!

:Congrats man!! I hope they produce viable eggs for ya!! and I really like how you got him biteing down on her neck! Being that I havent bred any Pituophis yet, is the common? I know ive heard recorded from other sp but havent seen it in pines yet. Again, really cool pics!

:Also, I have a 6ft female which was burmated and a 6 ft male which was not. If I throw em together do you think he will be stimulated to breed, even if haveing not been cooled? I know its thought that for some sp of snake, hibernateing is important to sperm production in males. Does the same hold true for pines?

:welp, thank in advance for any info you can give.

:Congrats again!
